Lucy and Ricky, I Love Lucy

The lovable sitcom couple made history by positively representing a multi-ethnic marriage on TV, paving the way for others. Redheaded Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Cuban-born Ricky (Desi Arnaz) convey a marriage built on love, chemistry, and comedic antics.

Monica and Chandler, Friends

While many fans focus on Ross and Rachel’s iconic off and on again relationship, the most solidified relationship in the series is Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry). From friends to secret lovers to husband and wife, this couple proved their immense love for each other. Their teamwork to make each other better makes them the best couple in the show.

Santana and Brittany, Glee

This couple was popular for Glee fans everywhere. Referred to as Brittana, the couple began the show as friends. Santana (Naya Rivera) struggled with her harboring feelings for Brittany (Heather Morris) due to her fears of coming out as a lesbian. Though they dated and broke up throughout the seasons, they secured their relationship with a beautiful wedding in season six. It is bittersweet to watch their relationship now because of Naya Rivera’s sudden death in July of 2020.

Beth and Randall, This is Us

As the strongest couple in the drama, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) prove time and time again that nothing can hinder their happiness. Through all the flash-forwards, Randall and Beth portray a healthy relationship built on trust and support. Even when they argue, they promote open communication rather than running away.

David and Patrick, Schitt’s Creek

From business partners to lovers, David (Dan Levy) and Patrick (Noah Reid) bring happiness to viewers everywhere. Throughout the series, David grapples with finding where he belongs, making his marriage to Patrick that much sweeter. We still can’t forget when Patrick sang Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best” for David; we had chills everywhere.  

Devi and Ben, Never Have I Ever

This couple “technically” didn’t get together until the first season’s final moments, but they still belong on our list. Taking on the enemies to lovers trope, Ben (Jaren Lewison) and Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) throw hilarious quips to determine who is the better student. Although they are class rivals, Ben shows he cares for Devi when he lets her stay at his house and drives her to Malibu to spread her father’s ashes with her mother. When they kiss at the end, it illustrates the cultivation of their chemistry and deep affection for one another. 


Elena Alvarez and Syd, One Day At A Time

Elena (Isabella Gomez) and Syd (Sheridan Pierce) showcase the wholesome nature of young romance. Elena comes out as a lesbian and finds love with Syd, who identifies as non-binary. With their openness and honesty with each other, they challenge the boundaries of sexuality and gender. 


Dre and Rainbow, Black-ish

Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross) represent a couple who have stuck together through all of the problems they faced. They handle social, political, and relationship issues together with complete honesty and communication. Through their commitment to their family and each other, they prove that love is patient and kind.

Nick and Jess, New Girl

We love watching this couple evolve from flatmates to lovers. Although they jump between lovers and just friends throughout the series, we adore this couple’s lasting love for each other. Jess (Zoey Deschanel) and her eccentric but enchanting personality compliment Nick’s (Jake Johnson) sarcastic but charming self. This humorous couple proves that you can meet the love of your life anywhere, even in a loft with four male roommates.

Bob and Linda, Bob’s Burgers

Sometimes complete opposites just work, and it’s no different with this couple. While Linda (John Roberts) is bubbly and outspoken, Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) is introverted and grumpy. They show their deep love for each other through their differences; Bob joins Linda on her crazy theatric escapades while Linda buys Bob a vintage bacon weight. The partners in crime are an example for marriages everywhere.
